All flights were going ahead as planned at Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport on Thursday despite a warning given by Hamas’ armed branch in Gaza. A spokesperson for the Israel Airports Authority said flights had been disrupted for about 10 minutes but then carried on as usual. Late on Wednesday, a spokesperson for the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades warned flights against flying into Tel Aviv starting at 6 am.
In July, a rocket that hit very close to one of the runways at the airport halted flights and several airlines suspended flights for a few days under security concerns but resumed shortly thereafter. Hamas saw that as a victory. There was no rocket fire aimed at the airport on Thursday, according to an army spokesperson.
